These boxed selections of salmon flies, tied in the long tailed shrimp style in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12 are among the most popular and effective of our modern salmon flies. They include the famous patterns devised by Ally Gowans - Ally's Shrimp and the Cascade Shrimp in silver and gold. Also included are the Magus and Black Boar, which have proven their worth in recent seasons. Now available in our  ONLINE FLY SHOP

Ally's Shrimp and Cascade salmon fly selection

Each fly selection offers practical variety for use throughout the salmon fishing season, in a good range of colours and sizes.  The smaller, darker patterns will, in general, be of most use in low, clear or warm water conditions while the larger, brighter patterns will come into their own in high, cold or coloured water.

All five patterns are dressed on Fulling Mill black nickel double hooks or Partridge Salar doubles in four sizes - 6, 8, 10 and 12 - to create a salmon fly selection which will meet most conditions of water and weather likely to be encountered on salmon rivers from late Spring to Autumn.

Ally's Shrimp and Cascade Salmon Fly Selection

The flies included in our boxed selection are shown below. They include Ally's Shrimp, Cascade Shrimp (silver), Cascade Shrimp (gold), Magus and Black Boar in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12. The variety of colours and sizes provides a fly for all conditions.

 Ally's Shrimp and Cascade Fly Selection

Ally's Shrimp

The original and now renowned pattern devised by Ally Gowans. This is one of the most popular and effective of all salmon flies in use today on Scottish rivers. Worth a try in a wide range of river conditions and at any time of year. Supplied in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12.

Ally's Shrimp


Cascade Shrimp

The Cascade Shrimp is another of Ally Gowans's creations. It is a great allrounder and has almost surpassed Ally's Shrimp in popularity. This version has a silver rear body. Supplied in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12.



Cascade Shrimp - Gold

A very slight variation of the Cascade, with a gold rear body instead of the silver. Just as effective. Supplied in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12.



I first used this fly in 1989 on the river Endrick, where it proved effective for both salmon and sea trout. It has since taken salmon on several Scottish rivers including the Teith, Dee, Alness, Allan, Borgie, Ruchill and Earn. A good allrounder, showing up well in a variety of river conditions. Supplied in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12.



Black Boar

This is a fairly recent pattern, making good use of Chinese boar bristles to provide a bit of a kick in the tail. Combine the colours of black, red and silver and you have a reliable recipe for success, particularly in clear or cold water. Supplied in sizes 6, 8, 10 and 12.
